Review of Two Decades of Jazz - Rotcod Zzaj

Albare – TWO DECADES OF JAZZ:  When it comes to jazz guitar, listening doesn’t get any better than this… a double-album release with most of the tunes picked by the great guitarist himself.  Stunning and refreshing pieces like “Brazil Blues” make you realize this is music you can’t do without in your daily jazz routine.  Albare & his compatriots dig down deep into the heart of the jazz and make you feel every note on tunes like the lively and upbeat “Journey” – some of the most refreshing jazz I’ve listened to (yet) in 2015!  Some very “out of the ordinary” moments occur, too, as on “Acid Love“… super energy happening on this great tune.   It was the 10:01 “Long Way” that captured my vote for personal favorite of the twenty sonic offerings… and if you can’t find something to love here, you’re not the jazz fan you pretend to be.  I give Albare & all his players on this great release a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.  You can get more information about this stunning player at the Albare site.        Rotcod Zzaj
